The Hobie Heavy Duty Plug-in Kayak Cart has a much higher capacity and tires with tread that are more rugged than the standard plug-in cart or the Trax carts. The Hobie Heavy Duty Plug-in Kayak Cart's capacity far exceeds the weight of the heaviest Hobie kayaks. Tire capacity lists as over 200 lbs per tire. These tires are foam filled and standard rubber tire with deep tread pattern.The Hobie Heavy Duty Plug-in Kayak Cart is the recommended cart for the Tandem Island.
The cart works great. It goes over the sand fairly well. Can also be installed while yak is still in the water. This is harder to do with the wider tires. Well worth the money.
I purchases the HD cart but found the plastic stops would not stay in place and support the ProA. Austin and Hobie very helpful and to replace unit.
Mine works well, used 10 or 20 times so far no issues. You can also make this from PVC, but the Hobie version is metal and seems very durable. Will see if any issues like the previously poster had, Im sure ACK will help you out !
This is the cart to have when you need to drag your kayak to in my case the fishing spot. Strong wheels plugs into the Hobie kayak holes and can be broken down for transport. This is a step up from the one you normally get but worth every penny
